You won't need anything above 8GB for gaming (which I assume you will be doing since you picked an i5 instead of an i7),
aside from that it's a solid build.

Besides the ram, is everything else solid?? Main thing is, can i play in ultra settings and skype with friends at the same time managing a 60+ fps?

Yeah, you should be able to crush BF4. I wouldn't go with that PSU, though. I was considering using it on my build until i saw the reviews on newegg, apparently EVGA skipped out on their quality control on that one.

Add this to this build since you already have the rest of the parts needed.

Little bit pricier, MUCH better performance. Otherwise you could drop one of the gpus and switch back to your original psu and be getting about 90-95% of the performance of your original build at over 300 bucks less.

yes there is a difference. Windows 8.1 has directx12 support, and windows 7 does not.
